Festival of Light

The festival of lights, Diwali, brings not only displays of twinkling lights, but also Rangoli designs. Rangoli, a popular folk art that sees partakers make colourful designs on the floor in their houses, serves as a welcoming gesture and brings good luck. The design is created using coloured rangoli powders, ground rice powder and flowers.

In the art of rangoli, its most important element is to be colourful, something that is at the very heart of Moorcroft. Designer Emma Bossons’ colour palette comprises of turmeric orange, hibiscus pink and sea blue, amongst teal and lime. There are auspicious symbols that have a central role in the design such as the lotus flower and its leaves. A pair of candlesticks where chosen to accompany a vase because Diwali is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘dīpa’, meaning ‘lamp, light, lantern, candle, that which glows, shines, illuminates or knowledge’.
